ICA Legislative Luncheon
Each year during the Idaho Legislative Session, ICA hosts a luncheon for its members, legislators, committee staff, and other agency officials in an effort to discuss current issues important to the counseling profession.
Purpose & History of the Legislative Luncheon
The Public Policy & Legislation Luncheon emerged from a planning idea during ICA's Leadership Development Institute Training in June, 2013. The mission of the event is to help Legislators learn about the many ways Counselors contribute to the well-being of Idaho's communities and to establish relationships that can be used when seeking support for counselor initiatives, locally and nationally.
The 2021 Legislative Luncheon is currently scheduled for February 17th; however, due to COVID-19, it is unknown at this time if this event will take place.
If you cannot attend each year, you can support the event by encouraging others to attend or by making a donation. We cannot do this alone and hope to have as many counselors across all the specialties and ICA Divisions.
We ask you to consider joining the ICA Public Policy & Legislative committee as we continue to advocate for this great profession!
